Our High Priest
My ring which represents the Old Testament high priest's garment
I wear the ring every day
This page is being posted because I wear this ring every day.
When people (often cashiers) admire it,
I explain that the 12 stones represent the 12 tribes of Israel in the Old Testament.
the first high priest of Israel.
Once a year the high priest (Exodus 30:10 AMP) would go into the Holy of
Holies and take a sacrifice to atone for his sins and the sins of all those
the 12 tribes of Israel (Genesis 48-49 AMP). Only the
high priest could go in and only once a year for this exact reason. There
is a tradition that a rope was
tied around his foot so if he died while in the Holy of Holies, they could
pull him out. If this seems
odd to you, think about Indian Jones and the movie
"The Raiders of the Lost Ark." When the NAZIs were
opening the Ark of the Covenant to attempt to steal its power,
Indiana shouted, "Don't look!"
Someone recently asked me what does blood have to do with forgiveness of sin? Leviticus 17:11 AMP provides the answer. What is atonement?
Through the centuries, high priests were born, served and died and there was human continuity of the office of high priest. There were high priests during the life of Jesus.
The apostle Paul insulted the high priest without knowing he was the high priest. (Acts 23:1-5 AMP)
Jesus (Hebrews 4:14-16 NIV) is our eternal high priest. He was both the sacrifice for sin (his blood) and our high priest. He sacrificed himself once for all of us for all time and God raised him from the dead to prove his agreement with it. I "googled" some discussions of
Jesus' sacrifice and his high priesthood
Jesus as high priest vs Levitical high priesthood
Jesus' once-for-all Sacrifice
Melchizedeck, the Levitical high priesthood, and Jesus Christ (!!!)
The Lord prompted me to add this:
Jesus is our perfect High Priest. (Hebrews 14:12-15 AMP) Nothing about us is hidden from him. He already went through this life and knows intimately what trials we go through and how we feel. Considering what he has done for us, we can boldly come to the throne of grace. So don't hide as Adam and Eve did. Be honest with God. When you know him personally, "get over your past" and move on with confidence. This is harder than it sounds but do it. Your task is to walk in newness of life. (Romans 6:4 AMP)
The camera lens focusses on the ring
Once one understands the high priesthood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ,
it becomes easy to align the
photos on this page. The L-rd told me that
Lake Tahoe is like the
shaped like a
Kinnor, also known as the
Sea of Galilee in that it is a gem in the land.
More Kinnor playing!Change kilometers to miles and the lakes are about the same size numerically (Lake Tahoe is larger!).

What the high priest with the linen ephod the ring represents (!!!)
URIM AND THUMMIM
I Samuel 30:8 AMP may be an example of Urim and Thummim as David inquired of the Lord. It is important to ask the Lord for answers, not consult the daily horoscope, or ouija board or the like. If you are a Christian, commit your way to the Lord and trust him to guide you (Proverbs 3:5-6 AMP).
Priestly garments (interactive) (!!!)
Emerald Bay from the south (free federal pullout)
TBN, these are the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 gemstones associated with them.
These gemstones can be costly. I don't think it's wise to look too closely at color representations of the linen ephod unless you recognize gemstones easily.
Emerald Bay from the northwest (California state pullout)
Emerald Bay from the west
Emerald Bay according to Kodak is the most photographed scene in the world. They developed our photos for decades so they should know! You can kayak in from the south or from the north and, as I proved, from the east. It is a boat camp so you can make camping reservations. Don't plan on carrying your kayak up to the road to get picked up unless you are you know who.
